Kam Wah Cha Chaan Teng is a timeless gem where tradition meets flavor. Sampling their iconic pineapple bun paired with a rich, aromatic Hong Kong milk tea is a must for any visitor. With each bite and sip, you're transported to the heart of Hong...Kong's classic breakfast scene.More

Amazing food . My new favourite CCT in Hong Kong. Nai Cha was spot on. Loved the crispy noodles with shredded pork! Polo Bao was excellent and a must order item

A must do whenever i visit HK as their polo bun is still one of the most classic ones. Goes well with hk style coffee or tea. The services and ambience remain the same. Staff was not friendly in explaining their chinese menu (i cant...read chinese) and as impatient as evr. If you do visit, do not expect friendly services. Small tables with limited space to moveMore

This cafe is touted for its polo bun and egg tart. Both were quite disappointing - the polo bun was quite plain whereas the egg tart was ordinary. But you must try the buttered French toast. It's excellent. There is a layer of fried egg...in between the toast, which makes it different from others. This alone makes it a worthwhile trip to the cafe.More

Super local cha chaan teng (茶餐廳), Hong Kong cafe. The buttered pineapple bun and hot milk tea were fantastic and it was super affordable! Only around $4 USD.

Kam Wha is a cafe and bakery shop on Bute Street in Mongkok, very near to the Fa Yuen Street Market. Opening hours are 6.30am to 9pm daily. They have a typical small indoor seating area with tightly configured tables and serve low-cost local breakfasts...and all day meals. You'll also find a shop front take-away counter where you can purchase local style bakery products. Recently had a coconut tart from Kam Wah Cafe that tasted as expected. Tart was slightly warm, sweet and a nice afternoon treat. Lots of places around the city to try local cafes and cake shops. Along Bute Street Kam Wah is as good as any, worth a try if this is the sort of thing you're looking for.More

…which is shocking after five years here but it had never really appealed to me before. However here, containing as it did a pork chop, tomato slice and mayo, I loved it! Super fast service and low prices too, all of which combines to make...this a superb local cafe!More

As a lai cha lover, Kam Po Cafe's lai cha is always one of my favourites. It is rich is layers, smooth and thick. I heard from my friends that their milk tea base is blended with 4 types of tea! No wonder why the...flavour is so unique from other lai chas in Hong Kong! Gonna introduce this cafe on our website to let other lai cha lovers know! Would defintely like to try again. 作為奶茶的fans, 成日會去試唔同港式奶茶,聽朋友講金華冰廳嘅奶茶幾出名就去左試。奶茶底聽聞用左4種茶,又滑又厚,層次幾豐富,的確值得一試。More

The breakfast has a lot of dishes from noodles to pastry. Everything we tried were all tasty and the price was so reasonable. We had been here 2 times for the brunch and it was always full of people.

After visiting a few years back and being served an amazing pineapple bun, we found it has regressed this time. A rather cold bun not doing anything at all to melt the thick slice of butter. The standard hot drinks were good (HK hot milk...tea and coffee/tea "ying yeong").More

We love the food but the service is bad. They did shout at us in chinese because we couldn't understand them and can't decide what to order. They insist for us to order drinks per person and we thought it is included in the meal....The crew even laughed after we ordered and we felt unwelcomed. We will never go back in this restaurant.More

Busy busy busy for this cafe near the Goldfish Market. It’s well worth a visit for the Pineapple bread roll alone - it’s yummy. Very fast efficient service with no wait.

Pineapple buns are unbeatable. Must eat item in the cafe. I love the one served with fresh butter which had a hint of lemon fragrance. Marvelous! The milk tea was up on par. A famous traditional combo during HK tea time. The staff were not...particularly friendly when they arranged the seating. Our choice of seating was not be entertained even the restaurant was not crowded nor there's any queue. Quite disappointed. If they could be more flexible and customer friendly, I would not hesitate to give full 5 stars rating.More
